me how little people sometimes value skilled labor. End rant.
Anyway, I pieced the backing based on the lightest Supernova block (a beautiful one that Karin made early on). I'm REALLY excited about using those Cotton and Steel arrows and lions!! They just fit perfectly. I try to make my large quilt backs just as exciting as my fronts (or at least enough where I'd enjoy using either side), and this fits the bill for me.
I started quilting large pebbles from the middle, so that you get the illusion of a huge Supernova taking over the whole quilt. I'm in the process of quilting the smaller supernovas individually. I'm going to leave most of the blue quilter's linen background blank for effect.
Last night, I asked my guild what kind of binding I should use. I agree that it should be solid, and someone suggested purple. Why, trusty purple, do I always return to you? That's right, it's because you're the best color. ;)
Linking up to WIP Wednesday.
